Ninquen Syrah Antu 2006

External Review by We Speak Wine:

A ripe, juicy style, with lots of blackberry, briar and sweet spice notes that push through the medium-weight, nicely structured finish, where black tea and fruit echo. Drink now through 2010. 5,500 cases made. -JM The 2006 Syrah Antu Ninquen, sourced from a high elevation vineyard, was bottled without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, the nose offers up cedar, wood smoke, scorched earth, and blueberry aromas that jump from the glass. On the palate, it has attractive, savory flavors but is slightly compressed and tight. Give it 1-2 years to round out and drink it from 2010 to 2016. ** Only 4 in Stock **
